On Golden Pond

Directed by Mark Rydell
United States, United Kingdom, 1981


There’s little that happens in On Golden Pond that isn’t thoroughly predictable from the start, but the film is blessed with so much star power, charm and honest sentiment that everyone in the audience is willing to ignore the cliches and go the distance.
